Tuesday, January 26 at Noon

Temple Beth Torah’s Lunch and Learn favorite, Gregg Philipson, returns to share his knowledge with items from “The Gregg and Michelle Philipson Collection and Archive” as he discusses the Dr. Seuss you may not know.

We all know of Theodore Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) as the author of numerous children’s books including “The Cat in the Hat,” but what may surprise you is the material he produced during WWII as a Major in the U.S. Army and as a political cartoonist during the war.  His early commercial art for Esso Oil and other companies will amaze you!!

Join us for an exciting talk guaranteed to be an eye opener for many!
